It's a...

20101129135626250edit2

From the very beginning, we had a strong suspicion that the bean in my belly was a boy {good parental instincts, I guess} and today those predictions were confirmed! Come April, he'll be making his debut and we could not be more excited. After taking measurements, multiple times, and looking at measurments from previous appointments, my due date is officially confirmed for April 21.(and has not changed once).  Baby Boy Rinabarger appears to be growing strong and in excellent health - two statements from the technician today that gave us an overwhelming sense of happiness.

People keep telling me "let the shopping begin" but little do they know that the shopping began about 4 years ago when my obsession with childrens clothing (and just about anything involving babies) truly took off...it's a serious condition, that I will gladly take to a new level with my boy.  I think it's time to invest in a larger "bin" for all of my finds.

Yeah! You will love your little guy - I couldn't imagine having a girl now. He's going to be adorable in his new jazzy outfits!

Congrats! Calum was born April 24-perfect in my opinion as you really only have to buy one season of maternity clothes and you get to enjoy summer with your new baby boy. Yay!

And the family name continues on...Congrats! I think he looks like you. Either way he's going to come out a hunk. (Hunk is sort of a gross word.) Now share a picture of your bump already. Bump, bump, bump it up...I couldn't resist.

I couldn't be happier for you guys, your phone call made my day yesterday and made me feel MUCH better, I think it kicked me outta my post druggie funk. Love you!!

Michelle said...

Well apparently me blurting out "You are SO having a boy!" the moment you told me you were pregnant, was quite an accurate instinct! :) Couldn't be happier for the Rinakitties!

Kelly said...

Congrats - that boy will have a new outfit for every day. So thrilled for you guys!

So exciting! I'm sad that Dr. McQuary's testing skills aren't up to those of an ultrasound machine. Time to go back to school.

Super exciting. Our date stayed the same as well too. 4/21 could possibly be a BIG day.
